Iran-Pakistan Gas Pipeline Defied

The idea of a pipeline stretching from Iran's gas-rich southern regions to Pakistan was an imprudent decision from the outset as most gas-based industries in Pakistan are located in the east of that country not the west.
According to ILNA, and based on the views of energy experts, namely Morteza Behrouzifar, Iran gas pipeline was supposed to transfer the clean fuel from west of Pakistan to the east and pass  through regions mostly controlled by Salafist groups and Sunni Muslims that have problems with Iran.
Historically, Iran has not been able to export sizeable volumes of gas due to the alarming rise in domestic demand and the US economic siege. However, modest production growth will continue even under the sanctions due to Iran’s large domestic market and natural gas export to Iraq and Turkey.
Iran’s geography and energy reserves make it attractive for the Europeans looking for a long-term solution to boost their energy security.
